17 Television Deaths We’ll Never Forget

17 Television Deaths We’ll Never Forget

1 of 11

Really great TV writers make us want to tune in every week. We feel vested in the characters they create as if we know them personally. Which is why, when these characters were killed off, we dwelled on it as if we’d lost a close friend, and got a little upset with the writers. These are 17 television deaths we’ll never forget.

Walter White

White’s character on “Breaking Bad” elicits painful amounts of sympathy from the very beginning of the show until the end — discovering he has cancer, hiding it from his family, making and selling meth to cover his medical bills and his family’s bills and finally, turning into the villain he never meant to be. In the end, they don’t take him alive.

Charlie Pace

Charlie from “Lost” not only overcame drug addiction, but he wanted to be the father figure to Claire’s fatherless baby, and he wanted to protect Claire, who had been abducted and experimented on. But Charlie wasn’t only a standup guy in life. He was a hero in death, writing a crucial piece of information on his hand when he knew he was about to drown.

Buffy Summers

Coming face to face with death was a daily occurrence on “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” so nobody saw Buffy’s death coming. She was so young, she never got to experience a truly functional relationship. And, of course, she died so that the world wouldn’t end — the ultimate act of martyrdom.

Robb Stark

Poor Stark from “Game of Thrones” was too kind and moral to survive in that cutthroat world. He was thrown into a position of power that forced him every day to make decisions he didn’t want to make. His life was one political scheme after another that he was unwillingly a part of until he was killed.

Finn Hudson

The writers of “Glee” knew that Finn Hudson was so beloved that no story they could write about his death would do him justice. So, after actor Cory Monteith died of a drug overdose in 2013, the writers decided not to disclose how his character died on the show. His tribute episode, “Farewell to Finn” was nonetheless a tear jerker.

Debra Morgan

When Debra Morgan “dies” in “Dexter,” we don’t just feel bad for her. We also feel bad for Dexter because many would say she was the only woman he ever felt love for. Her death is also infuriating because she was normally a good judge of character and warned Dexter when she believed someone was dangerous. In the end that couldn’t save her. We’ll never forget the final moments when Dexter takes Morgan off life support in the hospital, and buries her at sea.

Ben Sullivan

It naturally feels strange to see any character played by funny man Brendan Fraser die. But what was truly sad was that he seemed to be the only kind thing about his BFF, cold-hearted Dr. Cox. Sullivan’s character died of leukemia, but not after befriending all the sick children in the hospital and warming our hearts.

Coach

Coach played the retired coach of ex baseball star Sam Malone on “Cheers.” He was endearingly slow-witted, never got the girl, and was often the butt of his own jokes, unknowingly. When the actor Ernie Pantusso died suddenly of  heart attack, Coach was written out of the show without explanation.

It’s never easy to see anything bad happened to the gentle giant that is Marshall. But the writers really went to town on him in the episode called “Bad News.” After an emotional roller coaster of a day, getting mixed answers on whether or not he and Lily will be able to have children, Marshall finally calls his dad to tell him that they in fact will be able to reproduce! Only to find out his father died of a heart attack that day.

Eddard Stark

“Game of Thrones” finds its way onto this list again. It was the death of Eddard Stark that really set the tone for this show, and the tone was this: nobody is safe. Eddard Stark and his wife seemed to be a part of the only stable and loving relationship, and his death marked the beginning of that family quickly falling apart and facing more and more danger. The way his head was heartlessly placed on a stake for his daughters to see was just excessive.

Mike Delfino

Mike and Susan Delfino were a couple you actually rooted for on “Desperate Housewives”–they seemed to get pulled into everyone else’s drama rather than perpetuating their own. When Mike Delfino has finished spilling his dark childhood to his wife, explaining how his dad used to beat his mother and how that’s caused him to be emotionally closed off as an adult, a car pulls up and he is shot to death.

Jin and Sun

Lost makes two appearances on this tragic list as well. As if this couple didn’t go through enough, with Jin being forced to take on a job as a hit man, working for Sun’s father, just to make ends meet, and Sun having an affair, and the two finally reconnecting on the island just when they find Sun is pregnant, then they die in the most tragic way. Sun is trapped in a sinking ship, and Jin voluntarily drowns with her, leaving their recently born child parentless.
